Letter: Putting Constituents Before Politics

The Summer 2010 edition of Plandome Manor’s “Your Village” newsletter brought residents up to date on a number of issues. An issue of concern for village residents and all residents of Manhasset and Port Washington is the intersection of Stonytown Road and Plandome Road, also known to many as the triangle.

The newsletter states “Mayor Donno is grateful to NYS Senator Craig Johnson for his efforts on the project. Senator Johnson has allocated $50,000 in state road improvement funds for this work.” The article goes on to say that Senator Johnson is trying to obtain a further $50,000 for this work.

Readers will remember the last NYS senatorial campaign when Mayor Donno ran against Senator Johnson. By obtaining this funding, Senator Johnson demonstrates his ability to work across political boundaries for the benefit of his constituents. The thousands of us who drive through this busy intersection every day owe him our thanks for supporting this important project.
